Written by Christophe Le Masne, the story revolves around Benoît, who has missed his mother’s funeral, as he was stuck on the Eurostar. He gets to the family home late, as usual. There he finds his siblings, furniture to divvy up and, in his chaotic room… the impish and irritating ghost of his mother. She will lumber him with a family secret that Benoît would have preferred not to know about. It leads him on a strange treasure hunt that is as moving as it is hilarious, steeped in tenderness and melancholy. Because while Mum may be dead, she hasn’t told them everything…

Produced by Karine Blanc and Michel Tavares for Takami ProductionsNotre petit secret is being co-produced by Alga Panavision, La Ruche Studio and Eclair. Having been pre-purchased by Ciné+, the film has also secured support from the Pays de la Loire and Ile-de-France regions. The French distribution will be handled by Jour2Fête in late 2017.

Having won the Procirep Award for Best Short Film Producer in 2015, Takami Productions now has more than 40 shorts under its belt since it was founded in 2002, including the recent title Aïssa by Clément Tréhin-Lalanne (nominated for the César Award in 2015). Notre petit secret is the first feature to be executive-produced by the Paris-based outfit.
